    Down yesterday after posting so-so Q4 results and providing soft Q1 guidance, Sina (SINA +10.8%) is now up sharply. With shares down 57% from their 52-week high going into earnings, thanks to regulatory concerns about Weibo, Sina's earnings call remarks about the impact of regulations on sign-ups may be better than some feared. SA's Jiang Zhang considers it unlikely Weibo will be shut down, given its government support.

    More on Sina's (SINA) Q4: The company is guiding for Q1 revenue of $101M-$104M, below a Street estimate of $113.7M. Advertising revenue +26% Y/Y to $103.7M, but mobile revenue only +1% to $21.3M. R&D expenses +120% Y/Y to $21.6M, and sales & marketing expenses +78% to $36M. Both figures easily outpaced revenue growth of 23%, and reflect Sina's growing investments in Weibo. SINA -4.5% AH. (PR)

    Sina (SINA -1.1%) edges lower following a downgrade to Neutral from Barclays' Alicia Yap, who expects the Weibo owner to issue conservative EPS guidance in tandem with Monday's Q4 report. Yap, who is bullish on the Chinese Internet space overall, expects growing investments in support of Weibo to hurt Sina's profits, and is also concerned about the potential impact of real-name registration requirements.

    Though dominant in much of the world, Facebook (FB) has been shut out of China for the last 3 years, during which time Renren (RENN) and Sina's (SINA) Weibo have flourished. Now Facebook is looking to re-enter China, but the company will have to appease government censors to get the go-ahead; and even then, entrenched local competition could make things very difficult. Twitter and YouTube also remain blocked in China.

    Sina (SINA -6.7%) sells off after DigiCha reports all users of Sina's wildly popular Weibo microblogging platform will be required to register with their real names as of March 16. It's added that since new users have been required to provide their real names, Weibo's registration rate has fallen to 2.5M/month. It's speculated some of this decline may be due to a lack of "zombie/spam accounts" being registered.

    Disappointing guidance (I, II) from Sohu.com (SOHU -14.5%) and majority-owned online game developer Changyou.com (CYOU -12%) takes a toll on some recently high-flying Chinese Internet stocks. SINA -5.9%. BIDU -2%. RENN -4.4%. Bucking the trend, interestingly, is gaming concern Perfect World (PWRD +6.2%), perhaps out of a belief that Sohu/Changyou's loss is Perfect World's gain.

    Though Maxim increases its price target on shares of Sina (SINA -0.7) (previous), it's a resounding Sell rating that's the headliner from a note out to Maxim clients penned by Echo He. The analyst doesn't believe that fundamentals and Weibo's excessive valuation have changed the outlook for SINA - even with the rosy glow from Facebook's IPO spilling across the sector.

    Shares of Sina (SINA) trail off 1.5% premarket after ripping a 12.1% gain Friday on a trading frenzy tied to news about Facebook's IPO. Analyst see even more upside with Maxim increasing its price target and Stifel Nicolaus saying the Facebook effect will be an ongoing positive driver.

    LinkedIn (LNKD +5.9%), Groupon (GRPN +2.6%), Baidu (BIDU +6%), and Weibo owner Sina (SINA +12.1%) have also received a lift (previously) from Facebook's reported IPO plans. So has Google (GOOG +2.1%), perhaps out of a belief that Facebook's high IPO valuation (rumored financial data suggests a trailing P/E in the 70-90 range) would make the search giant look cheap by comparison.

    Contributing to Sina's (SINA +3.3%) gains today may be a report from a government think tank claiming the number of registered users for Sina's Weibo microblogging platform rose 296% in 2011, to 249.9M - a figure that represents nearly half of China's estimated 513M Internet users. Weibo, which has occasionally raised the ire of regulators, was estimated to have 250M users as of November.
